UND (4-2) @ MSU (1-6) 11/27 8 PM

Recommended Posts

UND got into a hole early against UVU and despite taking a brief lead, couldn't hang on to win against an experienced UVU club.  They continue their road swing against a familiar foe... the Bobcats of MSU.

The Bobcats are coached by Brian Fish, who is in his 5th year and is looking to get the Bobcats trending back in the right direction.  Things were looking good for the Cats two years ago, they looked like the term "1 year away" after 2016-17, despite the sudden upset against SUU in the BSC opener.

It looked to be the case after they roared to a 4-0 start in BSC play last year.  They looked ready to take that step.

Then proceeded to lose 12 out the last 14 conference games and blew a 20+ lead against UND in the BSC opener....  Ooops

Now, picked in the middle of the pack of the BSC and the last run of Tyler Hall, the Cats are looking to make one last run at glory.  For Fish, they might have to, as the seat is starting to get warm for him as many in Bobcat nation are going, "How are we not contenders for the BSC crown this year despite having a POY candidate?" 

Player to watch: Tyler Hall

The senior guard will no doubt end up as MSU's all-time leading scorer.  Despite impressive numbers so far this year, they aren't as impressive as they were when he was a Sophomore.  His 3 pointer and free throw percentage is down from last year currently, but he his playing tougher competition.  He is someone that can go get 40 in a night if he has to, so UND needs to be on their best defensively.  

Milestone Watch:

Connor Avants is now 33 points away from 1000 career points.  If he can get a solid scoring night tonight, he might have a chance to do it at home on Saturday against Idaho.

Key Questions

1) How will the posts outside of Avants respond after a rough game?

2) Can UND win the rebound battle?

3) Can UND get enough outside shooting if Moody is off?

4) Can UND get off to a better start?

The Call:

I expect UND to get the road win.  I think Avants and Seales have another solid game and a bounce back performance from Rebraca with enough outside shooting from Moody to get the dub

UND 77-71

Game is on Pluto TV!

some good play, but some sloppy play on both sides of the ball as well

Too many turnovers for my liking.
